Attendance Policy

It is the intent of the governing Board of The City School to ensure that students attend school every day on time. Consistent school attendance is critical to school success. Being present for classroom instructional time is essential for students to reach their goals and achieve their dreams. Chronic absenteeism has been linked to an increased likelihood of poor academic performance, disengagement from school and behavior problems.

Excused Absences for Classroom Based Attendance

Absence from school shall be excused only for health reasons, family emergencies and justifiable personal reasons, as permitted by law or Board policy.

For more information, please read our Student and Parent Handbook

Excusing an Absence

All absences must be verified in written form or via email: If you choose to, you may email our attendance office in order to verify and excuse your student's absence. Please note, absences are not excused until you receive a confirmation email.


Please contact our attendance office with any questions about your student's absences.
